C-32 Cutten Stormwater Detention Basin

Project Description

The Cutten Stormwater Detention Basin (HCFCD Unit P500-02-00), located on a 235-acre site near Cutten Road and State Highway 249, will reduce flooding risks in the Greens Bayou watershed by taking in excess stormwater during heavy rain events and then releasing it slowly back to the bayou when the threat of flooding has passed.

The portion of the detention basin located south of Greens Bayou is functional and can detain stormwater during large rainfall events. In March 2013, the Flood Control District began an excavation and removal project to remove additional soil from the southern portion of the basin. The Flood Control District also began an excavation and removal project in February 2013 to remove soil from the portion of the detention basin north of Greens Bayou.
